Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik is called the “Pearl of the Adriatic”. Located in south Croatia along  the coast, it is one of the most prominent tourist destinations in the Mediterranean. Historically, the city was a free and independent state called “Republic of Ragusa” until the French incursion in 1808. Due to the successfully management of preserving its beautiful Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque churches, monasteries, the old city of Dubrovnik was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage Sites list in 1979. I am very happy to have this beautiful postcard for my collection which shows a bird's-eye view of the walled old city and the beautiful Adriatic Sea. Thank you very much Bruno for it and also the great words you wrote, much appreciated!
